A Steal!!!

Okay, so my favorite thing about birthdays is birthday money, and getting to spend it. This year I got a little money for my 25th; it's weird that I'm 25 now. Anyway, I decided to "stimulate the economy" and go buy some fabric. What else would I do with it? Today I went to Joann's knowing full well they are having a sale on silks, 40% off. I had hopes of buying a yard to make a sash or something small, just to dress up an outfit. Well, I went into the bargin bins and found this amazing find.....

Olive green silk for $6 a yard. I about fell over. Not only was it the perfect color I was in search of, but at $6 a yard, I can totally afford to make a ball gown out of that. I snatched my find up hurried to the cutting counter. Then I headed over to Mill End to buy some trims for said green silk :-D It was an exciting day. Here is a pic of my amazing finds...



This is what I plan to turn said fabric into... Tee Hee...

Beautiful!!! I think I might be *almost* as excited as you are, just to think of what a great price you got on it!! And happy belated birthday! (I saw on facebook it was Wednesday?) :) Are you going to postpone your jacket/petticoat ensemble until you make your ball gown?

I am going to make by jacket first. I have a ball coming up in April that I'm going to wear my white l'Anglaise to. I'm going to save the green gown for our ball in June!!!
